Question about Technics SC-DV290 System

Open Question

Technics minidisc player/recorder model no: SJ HD50.

Won't play discs instead after inserting a disc any disc just comes up with 'disc error'. Have sent it in for repair and they say that it needs a new optical laser part no: raf1700a/s which is very hard to obtain as the model has been discontinued. This has hardly been used, please try and help.

did you buy your system in adifferent region and moved with it to another? I heared something like some DVD players are region-locked. I could be wrong but google about region-lock... try this among others: http://dvd-player-software-review.toptenreviews.com/what-is-dvd-region-lock.html

The part required is likely to be the optical assembly which will cost more than $100 easily. This part should be available from any Panasonic parts supplier, but the cost is more that I would recommend. Check around to see if yuo can replace the unit for around that cost. In the meantime, I'll try to locate the exact part number and cost.

SOURCE: FAILURE TO READ DISCS. TECHNICS SL-DV280 (SC-DV280)

if the disc starts to rotate when helped by hand then you definately have a weak spindle motor. dvds spin faster than cds which gives more wear & tear to the motor. i've repaired these faults numerous times. hope this helps?

What does utoc error mean on a Kenwood mini disc player


Well, what it means is

TOC errors often mean the recording head/optical block is cooked. A cleaner might work, but often it's the end of the MDR.

Are you sure the battery is correctly (fully) charged? Try removing the battery and running on (only) the charger.

try cleaning the lens with a minidisc lens cleaner.

open the unit and check the laser position - it should be all the way to the left. that's where it should start to read the disk.

Disc ejection


You fix it by returning it to the guy who bought it and getting your money back. Call eBay customer service.
If it is too late, tell me more. Does the disc go right in and then right out? Does it try to read it first?

No. MZ-n510s cannot play those discs. Buy a HI MD machine or sell the disc.

It sounds like you have a newer portable minidisc player, and an older deck. There were several upgrades over the years for ATRAC files, and some of the newer recording formats are not compatible with older players.

You may have to clean the eye or lense in order to read the disc.
